Hey! It’s been awhile but with a new mini me I’ve been non stop. So we are back at it. Today we have a spider finger play for upcoming halloween. It’s youtube video so feel free to pop it up on the smart board and follow along. It’s short, easy and cute!
IN this SMART notebook activity students need to listen to the clues to determine what is hidden inside the box. Objects include chicks, lambs, bunny, easter eggs, tulips and more. Once they guess they can use the eraser to erase inside the box and see what is hidden. Click below on Easter What Am I?
Easter What Am I
In continuation with printables I have come up with some Easter printables. The first set can be printed and laminated to be used at a math station. Each basket has a number on it. Students can put that number of Easter Eggs in the basket. You can use cut out eggs or chocolate eggs or plastic eggs or glass stones.
The second printables are the same but they are black and white. Students can colour them in and draw in the number of Easter Eggs.

I seem to be having trouble accessing SMART notebook on my computer at the moment. So well that gets fixed I am going to create some worksheets/ interactive printable games etc for users to download instead. Today we have a cutting practice activity. These two sheets have four boxes each for students to practice cutting around. Then they can colour in the easter eggs and glue them onto a bright coloured background. Click below on Easter Cutting.
Build three letter words but adding the middle letter. The phonics ferret will say a word and students need to click on the letter that goes in the middle to complete the word. Great for word cvc practice. Click below on Phonics Ferret.
Back at our reading strategies spotlight. Today we have an Inferring and Predicting activity. A very short story is read to students. Then they are asked to infer or predict what will happen next. They are given three choices to choose from. Click below on Detectives’s Notebook.

Today I am taking you back to the website from yesterday but focusing on a different reading strategy – making connections. Students listen to a short story (2-3 sentences). Then the click on a student that student makes a connection. The connection is either text to text, text to self, or text to the world, or no connection. Our students have to decide what type of connection it is. Click below on Making Connections.
